Accra, City of Squatters

Whenever one gutsy vote-winner tries to make angsty Accra ‘marchable, ‘breatheable’, ‘tourable” and humanly habitable, another (usually more powerful) will freeze the Fahrenheit of the effort. We, who are lightsome with free-flowing pavements, may well be in the minuscule minority now, and politics being a statistical sport, we are doubly doomed to lose our homes and space to streptococci-squatters

    Democrazy,abi? But Accra can be still be sorted by careful planning, communication and education. As it is patience and planning will win out. Some hope!

  2. Like KMB said, some hope. And it's not just in Accra too.

  3. exactly. they really care more about numbers than about life and people. the funny thing is that at the bottom of their hearts they know what is to be done.
